BaYS is an auditioned*, sequential youth orchestra program designed to create an opportunity for dedicated and talented young musicians, living in communities south of Boston, to perform symphonic music at a high level in a well organized and supportive orchestra program. In partnership with the Plymouth Philharmonic Orchestra, the program offers ensembles at two levels: a full orchestra for intermediate level string, wind and percussion students (Repertory), and a full orchestra for advanced string, wind and percussion students (Symphony). Artistic Advisor Steven Karidoyanes meets and rehearses with the orchestras three times per year. Students are coached by SSC faculty members and area music educators.
